Commercial Lawyers

As a business operating in today’s increasingly regulated markets, you need to manage your commercial risk while achieving your business objectives. Your success is built upon the effectiveness of your relationships with both customers and suppliers. Sector-specific contractual arrangements are key to this. Not only do you need the right legal answer, you need it in the context of the market in which you operate.

Our team in China has been handling commercial law issues for over a decade and is advising our clients in the key areas of their operative business - sales, procurement, production and service contracts.

We organise our teams according to sectors and industries relevant to you, including automotive, machinery and equipment, technology, media and telecommunication, consumer products, lifesciences, energy, financial services, and hotels and leisure. Whether you require advice on commercial contracts, supply services, logistics, e-commerce, IT or telecoms agreements, data protection, design and manufacturing, advertising, sponsorship and marketing, consumer sales, software licensing, outsourcing or sales, agency, distribution and franchise agreements, our specialists can guide you towards the best business outcome for you.

Furthermore, with over 350 lawyers across 34 countries, our multi-disciplinary teams are trained to understand the cultural and business variations impacting your commercial arrangements.
